My journey of learning how to see rightly. A place for thoughts on theology through the arts; and the arts through theology.

This painting is the first in the triptych on the life of Christ. Both this image and the previous post are 4 by 6 foot canvases. This painting is from a line in a Wesley hymn that spoke of the Incarnation as "the Godhead contracted to a span." A span was typically known as the length of a hand. The colors are meant to be reminiscent of the blood and water that flowed from Christ in both his birth and his death.
